Make sure you have downloaded CCleaner here: http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download If you did, it could just be a false positive. In which, it does happen time from time.

Which av do you use?

 

Ask them about their detection of Ccleaner as it will probably be a false positive as Twisted Metal said above..

 

I suggest you contact one of the sites listed in Item 10 here and have your PC checked

ccleanersetupxv.exe is not the normal naming convention used when downloading from Piriform.

Backup now & backup often.
